Some operators on interval-valued hesitant fuzzy soft sets

  • Manash Jyoti Borah
  • Bipan Hazarika


The main aim of this paper is to introduced the operations “Union”, “Intersection” and four operators namely \(\tilde{O_1},\tilde{ O_2},\tilde{ O_3},\tilde{ O_4}, \) on interval-valued hesitant fuzzy soft sets and discuss some of their properties.
